Top 2 Restaurants from Each of Walt Disney World’s Four Theme Parks

How to choose just two each?? This list was ridiculously difficult, and there are absolutely dozens more wonderful choices. But we’ve narrowed down the two best restaurants from each of Walt Disney World’s four theme parks. Check them out:

Magic Kingdom:

  1. Be Our Guest: If you can get a reservation you’ll love Be Our Guest in Fantasyland. This unique dining experience pulls all the magical stops. There are three main dining halls, each replicating a famous room from Beauty and the Beast. They’re gorgeous. Breakfast and lunch are served as quick serve meals, with the option of ordering for pick up. But dinner is a full sit-down, prix fixe, three-course meal. All menus are French and movie inspired, like French onion soup and Grey Stuff! This is a one-of-a-kind dining experience fit for beauties and beasts alike!
  2. Cinderella’s Royal Table: People dream of stepping inside Cinderella Castle. And with Cinderella’s Royal Table you actually can! This incredible restaurant truly makes guests feel like royalty. This is a character experience meal, but the magic comes from the scenery itself. The restaurant is on the second level of the Castle, which gives tremendous views of Magic Kingdom. Cinderella’s Royal Table offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner with small, but lovely menus. There are also special enhancement packages to make your experience even more magical, like special desserts, tiaras, and even the famous glass slipper for proposals!

Animal Kingdom:

  1. Tusker House: I love Tusker House. Located in Africa, Tusker House is a character buffet like no other. The theming of this restaurant is so special – it looks like a safari headquarters! Every inch of it is decorated with designs that add to the story. And speaking of safari, Mickey and the gang come out to visit with guests in their safari gear! They’re adorable. The cuisine at Tusker House is super cool too. The buffet has mostly authentic African foods, with some American choices as well.
  2. Tiffins: Tiffins is Animal Kingdom’s high class, signature restaurant. Themed after world travel, the décor here is adventurous and daring, while remaining elegant. The menu is just the same. Nothing on here is unheard of, but everything is presented in a unique way, so that your plate looks more like a piece of art. Here you can try foods like charred octopus, crispy sadza with pork belly, and sweet potato ice cream! There are several dining packages to go along with your meal, including Festival of the Lion King and Rivers of Light!

Hollywood Studios:

  1. Brown Derby: The Hollywood Brown Derby is an exact replica of the real restaurant in Hollywood, California. From the swanky interior, to the caricature drawings on the walls, this restaurant is like being transported to the roaring 20’s Hollywood. Its lunch and dinner menus are very similar and thoroughly decadent – all American-style food with special twists to keep things interesting. The Brown Derby also has a great Fantasmic! dining package, and an option to dine with a Disney Imagineer!
  2. Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano: The vibe of Mama Melrose’s is what makes it for me. This cozy restaurant feels like something out of a movie, which is appropriate being on the backlot of Hollywood Studios. The main dining room is a bit dark and absolutely filled with tchotchkes and memories of Mama Melrose. You could spend hours checking out each knick-knack along the walls. Mama Melrose’s has traditional, home-style Italian far. This food is comforting and scrumptious. And you can pair your meal with a Fantasmic! dining package!

  1. Monsieur Paul: Monsieur Paul exudes pure elegance. Although this restaurant is only open four and a half hours each day, it still rivals every other restaurant in Epcot. Monsieur Paul sits above Chef de France, which gives guests a spectacular view of the World Showcase. Inside, the décor is crisp and clean – like you’re stepping into a three star restaurant in Paris itself. The food is sublime. You can choose off the menu or select Prix Fixe Prestige (three courses) or Prix Fixe Degustation (six courses). Whatever you choose, you will not be disappointed.
  2. Le Cellier Steakhouse: This is not your average steakhouse – Le Cellier in the Canada Pavilion is something really special. This restaurant is designed to look exactly like a real wine cellar somewhere in the heart of Canada. It’s dark and romantic, rustic and tasteful. And the food is unbelievable. Le Cellier offers both lunch and dinner, with very similar menus. Their highlights are the Canadian cheddar cheese soup and the phenomenal steak selections. They also offer an extensive alcoholic menu, with unique wine and beer choices.

This is a tough list to create with so many great restaurants! How does our list compare to yours?
